Doug Parkinson Honours Joe Cocker

The Sensational and Definitive Joe Cocker Story an international tribute.

Australia's greatest soul voice, Doug Parkinson, presents the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker.

A night of soul and rock classics, the electric current runs high, generated from the very talented 8 piece band and of course the powerful and unique voice of Doug Parkinson.

Joe Cocker was an irresistible force that combined a love of American soul music with standout interpretations and depth of feeling, terms often used to describe the soulful smoky voice of Australian singing legend Doug Parkinson.

Cocker is most famous for what he did with other people's songs Hitchcock Railway, Delta Lady, You Can Leave Your Hat On, She Came in through the Bathroom Window, The Letter, You Are So Beautiful, Up Where We Belong and Cry Me A River.

These are just a few of the songs Doug Parkinson has included in this new show that rolls along and leaves the audience spellbound.

There couldn't be a more appropriate singer in Australia to showcase the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker than the gravelly soulful voice of Australian singing legend Doug Parkinson, often described as exciting and impassioned and also a master of interpreting others' songs.

A highlight of Doug Parkinson's show includes his own hit records, this includes the masterful and iconic hit record Dear Prudence, and his very own interpretations of other legendary artists Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Michael McDonald, the Beatles and The Great American Song Book, just to name a few.

If you love Joe Cocker's voice and songs you will not want to miss this ultimate tribute.
